The problem is that a Debian derivative may have different packages or
at least different versions of packages, with different dependencies
than those in Debian proper which means that solutions that apply to
Debian itself don't always apply to derivatives, and vice-versa.

In a related note, debian-project's stated purpose is "Discussion about
non-technical topics related to the Debian Project", which looking for
packages doesn't really fit. You might find one of the more
user-oriented lists more appropriate.
